A little while back I had an email, via Flickr from and editor at Schmap saying that one of my photos had been short listed for the next version of their London travel guide. For those who don’t know, like me, this is what’s Schmap is about.
Schmap is a leading publisher of digital travel guides for 200 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The innovative technology behind Schmap Guides also lets end users publish their own 'schmaps' (to share trip itineraries, local reviews and more), and powers a popular range of Schmap Widgets, displaying maps with content and event schedules for travel, sports, concert tours and more on a fast-growing network of websites and blogs. Founded in 2004, Schmap is privately owned and based in Carrboro, North Carolina </blockquote> The photo in question was a quick snap I'd taken with a Sony Ericsson K750i when I was up in London on Oxford Street outside of John Lewis back in December 2006. The original photo on Flickr. Today I received another message congratulating me that my photo had been published! Kinda cool for a camera phone shot! It's featured in the Computers & Shopping section of the latest Schmap guide.
